World of Standards

I saw an interesting post in my feed reader today about the fact that the IE8 passes the Acid2 test.
I ran the test myself immediately using my installed browsers. I was surprised that firefox didn't pass the test but I was very happy that Safari and Webkit both passed.
The whole test is just about displaying a simple smily face correctly, isn't it?
Taking a closer look what is inside the test I was surprised how many small details are tested.
They also test some seldom used great css features like the generated content, css tables, child selectorsto name just a few one.
The guys there simply made a brilliant job for the web community.

I am anxious to try the next Acid test. :)
